Apurvi Chandela and Ananya Paul secured Gold and Silver respectively for India in the Women's 10m Air Rifle shooting final at the 2014 Commonwealth Games today.

Chandela, who set a new Commonwealth Games Record with a score of 415 in the qualifying rounds, dominated the Final from start to finish, never losing her spot at the top of the leaderboard. In sharp contrast, Paul made a poor start to the competition, shooting only a 30.2 from her first three shots in the Final and was often faced with the threat of elimination, but showed tremendous poise in the face of adversity to battle her way up the leaderboard and grab the Silver medal with a final score of 204.9, well behind Chandela's effort of 206.7.

Mohamed Taibi of Malaysia took the Bronze in what was an exceptionally exciting finish.
